Thurs, March 13, Corner Bakery Cafe/3300 Monroe Ave./across from Pitts. Plaza

Come join us for some fun, friendly, and non-competitive games of euchre.

WE ARE NOT A TEACHING GROUP!

You must have a working knowledge of Euchre! Meetups for this group are every week including Sundays.  People who like playing more are encouraged to get together and play.

Also, if there is an uneven number of people, some will have to sit out one game.

    Good morning everyone. I just wanted to say, that despite the "questionable" behavior I witnessed last night, I enjoyed myself. I met some nice people. I really enjoyed playing with most. It would be a good idea to share the guidelines this group plays by. I, unfortunately, asked a question that I wish I hadn't. It is what spurned the moment. Holly, I enjoyed being at the same table with you. You have such an upbeat personality. I hope we will see each other again. Everyone have a nice day and a good weekend.

    My turn to put in my 2 cents. And I am going to pull from a number of different posts-----SOCIAL, people out to have a fun relaxing time. SCORING, I don't find this competetive as much as a reason for some GOOD NATURED ribbing (we're social, remember folks?). And at least part of the time converstion is about the confusing aspect of keeping score and you know you are not alone:-)----RULES, I have heard of the Book Of Hoyle but have not read it(I like mysteries myself!) Never heard of stick the dealer before I played here, but not to worry. There is no way, seeing as we get new people every week, to go over rules. Most of the time if there is a new person at the table someone mentions stick the dealer. In the course of normal conversation CHAT about it---NO RAISED VOICES, NO STANDING UP, NO SLAMMING DOWN CARDS (we're social, remember folks?) As evidenced by this weeks behaviour everyone felt uncomfortable! Have a good time and don't make Gay play HouseMother. Not Fair to her!

    I think there is a distinction between being competitive and playing in a competition. Yes, the rules are the same, but for those who really can't live without winning, either buy yourself a trophy or stay home. I witnessed some of this out-of-sorts behaviour at another table and will not stand for it again. I would appreciate you leaving your aggressive and rude behaviour at home. Being competitive is expected, regardless of your definition. This is supposed to be a social and fun event, and not a winner take all attitude.

    The first thing I always do is welcome our new members, but this time I can't. I do not believe what happened tonight. I thought we were all adults as everyone keeps reminding me. This certainly was not adult behavior. What part of SOCIAL group is not understood??? If you do not know what it means, look it up. Since when have we gotten so angry, people stand up and start making a obnoxious public display of themselves?? I don't blame Holly for leaving. I wouldn't blame anyone for leaving this group after tonight. Our intro to new members is "Come and join us for some fun, friendly, and NON-COMPETITIVE games of euchre!!!! Hello, is any one home?????

      Diane, I hate pro baseball. I was just trying to change the subject like people do when they say "how about them Bears?" I figured I would do it a tad different. I go to summer college games in Glen Falls, Utica, Niagra NY, lots of neat towny places. I'm inviting you to join me when the season starts. We do all the driving so no worries about that. My husband is a die-hard fan. I'll tell

    HI All I would like to add in agreement with Gay's comments and to all were there last nite -what and weird and uncomfortable nite is was for so many. And for our new people it was at it's best the most unrepresentive nite of what a fun and kind group I have found this to be. I have made some amazing and loving friends here and extended friendships outside of our group and truely enjoy coming to play and meeting new people for everyweek there is a new face to the group. I have yet to meet a superior player and those who wish to teach and guide people in playing SAVE it that is NOT why we are here for I have been euchred and euchred those who choose to explain the hand or tell me of the "right" way..hmmm didn't work for u?? .. so just go with the flow!
    This group is for relaxing fun and non-competitive socialism and would like to keep it as such. Tournaments r plentiful and that is where one should be if they can't come with the intent of fun ONLY..

      Same thing when I play with 80 yr old men, & I really do, with Gin (as another EX) they ROAR if you don't play their way, but they NEVER (your word Mike, I like it) BERATE people. Enough said. See you all next week. FOR A FRESH START :-)

      Some of these sentences are debaclwd as a result od a stupid phone. I'm sure you can infer what I meant. FYI, sorry

      1 · March 15, 2014

  • Kathy S.

    No offense to anyone, but it sounds like someone made a mistake. They hopefully apologized and this should just be moved on and not dragged out like this. It's harder to get over something when it's repeatedly brought up. Hopefully a lesson was learned. I am sure we all have more interesting topics to discuss when we next meet. As a new member, I will point out that the only confusion I had in rules is the "stick the dealer" rule and when it applies and when it does not. I comment often on "no cross boarding" but really it's not a big deal when it really is all about having fun. The rules, if must be posted, should be simple. I picked up very quickly on the posting of "we play for fun" rule! This has become a high light of my social outings and so look forward each time to see you all. Let's keep it loose and entertaining; a fun night out for all of us.

    Wow, since when has being competitive been a bad thing. Sounds like the real problem here was rudeness by somebody. I wasn't there but I do know that no one has the right to berate other players . If you want to pout go outside and pout. I am very competitive. I love to win this game, but I'm not going to yell at people if things don't go my way. I just want to have fun and play euchre. without keeping score there is no point in playing. If you get a hand you don't care for , that's too bad, better luck next hand. everyone gets bad hands. It's bad attitudes that causes problems. Just have fun.

    Welcome Sylvia, Holly, Jerry, Sam and Noreen. Welcome back Rob and we all hope you continue on your way to a full recovery. As you have all read, last night was really out of the ordinary. I hope our new members will please come back to see what our group is really like. I, like Barb, have made wonderful friends and enjoy dinner, lunch and a female impersonator show (hmmm) and the Public Market to name a few with members of this group. Holly, I give you a lot of credit for coming back. I will personally email some individuals and make changes. I have already tried, without success to write our rules under what we are all about, but for some reason they are not changing. I have already written to Meetup to help me with the changes. I appreciate all the support some of you have given me. Thank you.
    Do not forget for one minute this group is anything beside being SOCIAL and having FUN!

      There is no blame to be had by anyone but those who behave poorly and usually they are not wise enough to accept it. The thing about rules is, if one knows how to play they know the rules. In a tournament they are surely followed to the letter. social means just that social...if someone cross boards or wants to throw in a farmers hand then we talk as adults and say we don't play that way. That is not in the Hoyle rules. We are not a tournament but we try to follow the same rules as in one but you will not be screamed at, made to feel uncomfortable or a poor player. I honestly have not met a person I do not like in this group and will tell anyone I can what a great group it is. I also have no problem telling someone when they are not playing nice. So this is the last I will say on this subject and put it to rest. Kuddos to Holly for being the better person and not giving up on this amazing group of people.
